Thank you for the answer but the problem is not clear for me (excuse me
for the insistence and for my horrible English).
I use a debian 2.1 (slink) with isdn4linux; when I connect to internet
on my linux-box the pppd deamon don't run but _only_ ipppd.
How could I use pptpd? Must I execute pppd manually? Excuse me but I'm
really a beginner!
